LibriVox recording of Warlord of Kor by Terry Carr. Read by Mark Nelson
GOD, MACHINE--OR LISTENING POST FOR OUTSIDERS? Horng sat opposite the tiny, fragile creature who held a microphone, its wires attached to an interpreting machine. He blinked his huge eyes slowly, his stiff mouth
fumblingly forming words of a language his race had not used for thirty
thousand years. "Kor was ... is ... God ... Knowledge." He had tried
to convey this to the small creatures who had invaded his world, but
they did not heed. Their ill-equipped brains were trying futilely to
comprehend the ancient race memory of his people. Now they would
attempt further to discover the forbidden directives of Kor. Horng
remembered, somewhere far back in the fossil layers of his thoughts, a
warning. They must be stopped! If he had to, he would stamp out these
creatures who were called "humans." ( Gutenberg text)

I like old school Sci Fi, and Warlords of Kor is a good example of such. There's depth to it, as well. It's not your standard fare. The reader is excellent, and this interesting story moves right along.
